Today's Opinions

  • Thank to Pioneer News

     Thanks for the nice send-off you guys at The Pioneer News gave me when I retired.

    I have such fond memories of my 25-plus years at the paper. We had good times and bad times but we all went through it together. Sometimes is seemed like we were more like family than co-workers. You are all special to me.

    Thanks Linda and Patty from Central Office for coming for my retirement party. It meant a lot to me.

  • Does our flag still fly?

     On July 4, Hal Lindsey made a guest talk about whether our flag was still flying. He mentioned about our first president who were Christians, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. Our nation was founded on the Bible.

  • This is a column that you can take on the road

     It’s not a pretty time to be a motorist in Bullitt County.

    A year from now, things might be a whole lot different.

    No matter where you live in the county, road construction can be seen.

    For the past few months, repairs on Interstate 65 from about Highway 245 south to the Hardin County line have been underway.

    Travelers have been known to complain on the social media on the long, long line on I-65, especially on the weekends.

  • Time to slow it down, pay more attention on road as school starts

     Believe it or not, classes will be starting for students in the Bullitt County Public School System next Wednesday.

    Just two months after classes dismissed in June, students, teachers, administrators, bus drivers, cafeteria workers and custodians are all back to work.

    For many, it has been a summer without a break.

    With this in mind, all those distracted drivers who are traveling too fast need to wake up.

    Put away the electronic devices and start paying attention to school buses on the road. 

  • Best of Paul Coyle - 07/28/14

      This week's Best of Coyle, from 2007, is a reminder to Bullitt Cuuntians that school begins on one week, on Aug. 6.

    The Pioneer News staff wishes everyone a happy and safe return to school from their summer vacations.

  • Schools are safe

     This letter is in response to the letter to the editor that appeared in the July 16 edition of the Pioneer News regarding the new firewall at Bullitt Central High School and is meant to clear up any possible misconceptions regarding the safety of our school facilities, especially Bullitt Central High School. 

    The questions regarding the firewall simply concerned what we believed was an oversight in the engineer’s original design of the new firewall which led to a change order. 

  • Watch D.O.G.S. pride

       On a Saturday morning as the rain falls, each of us are thinking what a day for a parade. In my community the parade is a really big deal. From the fire engines and police cars, to the floats and teams, we all look up at the sky and wonder. This year was different. 

    This year dad’s from ( 4 ) Elementary schools and our Middle school decided we would march in the parade. As Watch D.O.G.S. 

    How cool!

  • Why don’t many people believe in marriage?

     It’s disturbing to me as a young woman, that no one seems to believe in getting married anymore. People just seem to have kids left and right with numerous partners at their own discretion. When did that become the norm?

    I look forward to the security that comes with having a husband and a house for my children one day. It gives a family stability.

    For a population that is so used to wanting everything right away,  it makes sense they just leave a relationship when it gets hard. They’re not married so they don’t feel an obligation.
